At Providence, we take care not to make our life together as a body program-driven. That is not to say that we do not have opportunities for people to meet together outside of our times of normal worship. Such opportunities, such as those listed below, do exist. But we are wary of dividing up the body of Christ into age and sex segregated groups.

One of the marvelous opportunities in a smaller church like Providence is the opportunity to have all the members of the church to interact with each other. All our children know all the adults and all the adults know our children, whether those children are teenagers or toddlers. We have a time of fellowship together after both the morning and evening services, as well as a monthly fellowship meal on the third Lord’s Day of the month. The life and the fellowship of the body is largely church wide, with a strong focus on house-to-house fellowship, as we see it in Acts 2:46.

That being said, all are welcome to participate in the following meetings Providence offers besides Sunday worship:

Ladies’ Study

Our Ladies’ Study meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7:15 PM at the home of the Meyers. Call (205) 368‑2187 for directions. We are currently reading Knowing God by J. I. Packer.

Men’s Study

The Men’s Study meets Thursday mornings at 7 AM and Saturday mornings at 9:30 AM in the pastor’s study. Breakfast will be served for the Thursday crew. We are currently reading Augustine’s Confessions.

Wednesday Night Prayer

We also gather for prayer on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 PM at JABA.
